This is a 2 page layout, using the Get Picky sketch #4, that I made from our trip to Florida.  We ate at a restaurant called The Dixie Crossroads and it had quite a write-up in several travel brochures, so we tried it out.  The ambiance was amazing.  So, I had to make a layout with some of the interesting things at the restaurant.  I used some DCWV cardstock as a base and then accented with some Graphic 45 papers.  The letters that I used for the title are some VERY old Basic Grey letters--it's a shame, because I wish I had more of them!.  The flower is by Foof-a-la and the buttons are by Basic Grey.  The tag is from Office Depot and I used the Giving it all Meaning stamp for the background using Antique Linen distress ink and then distressed it some with the same ink.  The ribbon is from BoBunny.  I used  border stamp from the This is the Time large set.  I love this set and have the small set as well.  They are just beautiful and come in handy so many times.
First, this is one of the first times I used sunlight to photograph with--it is very HARSH!  So, apologies for the flaws in my paper, etc.  The paper is by Nikki Silvas--very girly!  I used the two girl stamps from The Girl of the Moment set.  This card was part of the challenges from the Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast stampers.  The challenge was to paper piece at least two things on your card.  I paper pieced their dresses, using some scraps from my scrap basket.  I colored the girls with my copics.  The string was from my stash and the sentiment is from the October 2009 kit of the month "Wherever you Go", using distress ink.  

Don't forget to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win some wonderful Unity stamps.  Be sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win.  I'll see you tomorrow for my last day of Growing in Unity and for our Friends with Flair Friday.  Thanks for stopping by!
